Phillips DVDR880 : Disc Compatability



I have just purchased the Phillips DVD Recorder which seems to work well, but the Phillips +RW disc provided with the machine will not play on my older Grundig DVD player.

Any suggestions as to whether certain DVD disks will be compatible or is simply hit and miss.

I am afraid it is hit and miss with all the new R/W formats, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM and DVD-RW. Some/most older machines will not play any of these formats.
For a list of compatible machines for the Philips format see the DVD+RW org website on
